I AM WORTH WORKING FOR AND CHANGING FOR Update: On August 12, 2019 I began a PhD program at Northcentral University. I am working toward a PhD in marriage and family therapy and I am specializing in culture, diversity, and social justice in a global context. My focus is on the damages of systemic and individual racism in a society. Update: I have completed my master's program and am now working at a private practice as a family therapist. I am what is called an Associate Marriage and Family Therapist (AMFT), and as soon as I have my hours completed and take a test, I will be licensed (LMFT). Sometimes I cannot believe my good fortune to be able to do what I do. Past posts: *I was accepted into the graduate program and am now working on my MS in counseling: marriage, family, child therapy. I just started (Aug 2014) so I have another 2 years, followed by a year of internship. *I got my BS in psychology in May (2014)

Personal Information:
My name is Kimberlynn. I am Irish-American (57% Irish based on ancestry DNA). I am especially proud of my Irish heritage. My family hails from the province of Ulster, in Antrim, Belfast, Derry, Donegal, and Down; and the province of Leinster in Dublin. I grew up in Los Angeles County (Wilmington, Long Beach, Compton), but I have lived in the Central Valley of California (Visalia / Porterville, and now Clovis) for the past 30 years. Once I am licensed as an LMFT I will go into private practice. I am very interested in volunteering my therapeutic services as a United Nations Volunteer (UNV) for refugees in war-torn countries. I am currently in the application process for a doctorate: PhD in Marriage, Family, and Child Therapy with an emphasis in Culture, Diversion, and Social Justice.


Other Information:
I have an AA in social science, a BS in psychology, and an MS in Counseling: Marriage, Family, and Child Therapy and am registered with the BBS as an AMFT




I don't watch much TV - although I am insanely addicted to Criminal Minds - I love me some Dr. Spencer Reed. I do read A LOT. I love to read paranormal stuff - especially if it comes in a series. My current favorite is the Inheritance Cycle by Christopher Paolini

    "A candle is a small thing.
    But one candle can light another.
    And see how its own light increases, as a candle gives its flame to the other.
    You are such a light."
